Finishing Tips for Fair Isle: Braiding Your Yarn Ends
I saw this on Pinterest and had to share it with you guys! I want to make these sooooo bad! It’s the cutest idea!
Listen, if they’re going to call lightweight yarn “fingering yarn” then IS IT REALLY TOO MUCH TO ASK that chunky yarn be relabeled “fisting yarn”? I think I’m being pretty reasonable here.
I need the color codes for these yarns asap.

I jammed the shaft of my turkish spindle so far up the hole that I couldn’t pull it out :(
and had to wind the cop off to another ball :( :(
none of that was a euphemism :( :( :(

How to spin silk hankies (mawata)
1. Separate a single layer from the stack. If you can’t see through it, it’s more than one!
2. Poke a hole in the centre.
3. Open up the hole to make a loop.
4. Keep expanding the loop as much as desired (I like to fully pre-draft the entire thing). Then break the loop and begin spinning at one end.
I may have referred to step 2/3 as goatse one time…
And now I can never spin red silk hankies ever again.
color affection by marianasays on ravelry, using nooch fiber yarns :)
I take back everything I ever said about using wildly variegated yarns in Color Affections.
The Only One in the World Cowl
Almost infinitely customizable, this distinctive cowl marks you out as a Sherlockian everywhere you go. A smallish, easy design utilizing the patterns and techniques from my Knitting is Boring project. Great for seasonal gifts and for using up your yarn stash.
I developed the design for the winner of my knitlock giveaway, johnwatsonmmd. Make it your own by substituting / adding your own patterns and colours! You can use my ‘Knitting is boring’ patterns as inspiration, but you don’t have to. Whatever… rocks your boat. It’s all fine.
Message me if you have any questions about the pattern, or about knitlock in general. And have fun knitting!
